Guns N’ Roses tour manager Del James recently responded to an unhappy fan on Instagram.
ragdollx wrote, “We were looking for a photo. In 10 minutes this could be solved if someone got downstairs and talked to us. They will be free as [Richard] Fortus was, to walk the whole hotel with no more questions.”
James responded, “You seem to think you’re entitled to anything other than the concert? And the problem is once you take 1 photo you have to take 80 more photos. And that’s every single day so please enjoy the concert and respect other people’s space and privacy.”
He also wrote, “Oh yeah, Dizzy [Reed] did take photos and of course it turned into a shitshow with “fans” overwhelming him. I know I was there and saw it happen.”
“Duff [McKagan] was at the gym. What was he doing there? Working out, right? Probably not the right time to take ask for a photo or autograph. Again, enjoy the concert and respect the space and privacy of others.”
Beta Lebeis, a member of Guns N’ Roses’ management company Team Brazil, got into it with some AC/DC fans on Instagram in August who are upset with Brian Johnson leaving the band and dislike Axl Rose.
“I’m sure all of you wishes Brian would be there, but Brian is sick and for God sake, just appreciate what’s up there and stop being so selfish. Grow up and stop complaining. This is also about Angus and his mates, have some respect for them. Brian chose to leave due to health issues and Axl is helping his idol. I guess haters will always be haters and have nothing better to do than shit on other people.”
She wrote to another hater, “You are an idiot @guitar_boy111 and by the way, his name is spelled Axl.”
Rose’s performances with AC/DC this year have been widely acclaimed by fans and the press. He is currently touring with AC/DC in North America.
